My wife and I will be there, but without a car. We will be visiting friends in the UK and this will be the last weekend before we return home. I will definately be checking out the Hornets/Elves and visiting. I would really like to have a ride around the track with someone. Watch out for a white-haired guy with a strange accent.

I'll be down if the weathers's OK, but I'm not brave enough to bring the Elf this year. 2 1/2 hours to do 80miles is hard work!

OK, so it seems we're down to only 5 cars for this event now:

Al
Ray
Trevor
Sarah/ Jase
Anne .W

sadly, if this lack of interest in organised meets continues, then i shall have to consider whether to keep doing them or just not bother! Evil or Very Mad

If only we could move Castle Combe a bit nearer to Chester!
Sorry Al I can't be of any support here.
Hope you all have a great day.

I'm at the Malvern Autumn show Three Counties Show ground all weekend (forgot about this show and double booked) otherwise I would have joined you.
For members not having been to this annual event, it is one of the best in the calendar with not only the usual static displays and auto jumble but live Mini racing and its free! A great day out and it is in a beautiful part of the country with easy access to both the M5 and M4.

Same here. Liverpool to Combe is 3.5hrs at Google maps driving speeds, never mind in an Elf. Shame Miniworld don't choose a more central circuit for this.

not really whinging too much at peeps with a long drive (we have lots of members within range!) - that said though, if trevor's willing to do norfolk-castle combe and i can get to hungary and back, and we have people who come from scotland and yorkshire for brooklands, then surely others could be inspired?

i was also thinking of organising a mid-winter central meet (somewhere near gaydon) with an overnight travel inn stop on the saturday night for dinner and sociable drinkies, then a day out at gaydon on the sunday. elfs/ hornets not necessary as this would be a sort of jolly boy's outing just to get together so the modern cars could come out?

i quite like the idea........

Sorry for the late arrival on this topic. I will be at Castle Combe and hopefully Lexy will be too.

She's in the workshop at the mo having the roof paint sorted out and the door hinges sorted, I know, we're cutting it close.

Got my ticket today, thanks Al.

Lexy should be roadworthy this afternoon, just some chrome bits and the doors to fit.

Hope to see you there Kaschperl. Always nice to meet new people.

Yes, it was very nice despite the fact, that we had a traffic jam which costs us one and a half hours. Evil or Very Mad No matter... only 5 1/2 hours on the show we were very impressed while running around and catch up some parts, taking photos and talk to some friends.

Unfortunately I had no time to say Hello personally to all of you. Neutral Nevertheless, nice long row of Elfs and Hornets next to many other Minis. sunny

Great show and we hope to be there next year again (Maybe some hours more).

I was there and posted one pic of the line-up over on the Facebook page. Nice cars there -- met the owner of the Heinz. Sorry to miss the whole group. You were probably doing what I was most of the time -- watching cars on track, traipsing through the jumble, visiting vendors, looking at all the cars! Great show!
